Artist Talk: Lucinda Devlin photo

Artist Lucinda Devlin shares aspects of her creative process, focusing on photographic methods, techniques, and strategies for image making. Devlin will be joined by Lisa Hostetler, Curator in Charge, Department of Photography, George Eastman Museum. 

Lucinda Devlin's photographs serve as social commentaries on timely and socially relevant issues such as personal rights, the death penalty, and agribusiness. An internationally recognized American photographer who now lives in Greensboro, Devlin began her career in the 1970s during the genesis of color photography in America. At the time, she took up not only color photography, but also the artistic approach that she continues to this day, one that emphasizes an objective or neutral point of view. Devlin also discovered her preferred subject matter: psychologically charged spaces absent of any human figures yet nonetheless signaling contemporary public and private life.
